OFFPEAK - 5 Piece Rock Band From County Durham,
Funny old story how OFFPEAK started out, So Jamie Pick(Lead Singer) was singing Otis Redding (Sitting in the dock of the bay) in the shower, and his Brother Robbie Pick (Lead Guitarist & Songwriter) heard him and sat on the hall way and played the chords to it. When Jamie came out the shower, Robbie said that he was half decent singer. Jamie didn't believe him because everyone sounds good in the shower. But Robbie wanted him to sing whilst he played the guitar not in the shower, but Jamie was too embarrassed. So after a few more shower sessions where Robbie sat on the hall way and Jamie sang his heart out in the shower, Robbie persuaded Jamie to go to the local rehearsal studio for a laugh really, they went down at an 'Off-Peak' time, and they never looked back.
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?
OFFPEAK are here for the music, music is very political recently. OFFPEAK come to the venue, turn the distortion up, and play the best live set you'll see.
What’s your back-story?
OFFPEAK's debut single 'Ain't the Way' is relatable to everyone who has been stuck in the circle of going out every weekend drinking, taking drugs and on a downwards spiral. But realising it 'Ain't the Way' and turning your life around.
